Using a Logitech Webcam as a Gaming Microphone

E-mail Print PDF

I went through several different analog, USB, headset, and desktop microphones for in game voice. I was never really satisfied with them. The kids and the cat always want to attack them and I've had bad luck with the audio volume. People would always say I was too quiet. The microphone on the desk can be inconvenient and the headset is annoying since I use a nice set of 5.1 speakers normally.

I have a Logitech Webcam Pro 9000. It has always been great for Skype. The video is crisp and the microphone hears me clearly as I walk around the room. It occurred to me to try the microphone on the webcam for my Ventrilo and in-game voice needs. I changed the microphone in Win 7 to default to the Logitech Webcam. You do this in Control Panel -> Sounds -> Recording. It worked great. Everyone can hear me clearly now, and the microphone stays off the desk on top of my monitor. The only downside I've had is that it is very sensitive. When you press your talk button everyone will hear you, and your kids, and the neighbor's dog, and the butterfly flapping around outside your window.

Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog such
as yours take a large amount of work? I'm brand new to blogging but I do write
in my diary everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able
to share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
Appreciate it!

Having read this I believed it was very informative. I appreciate you finding the time and
effort to put this article together. I once again find myself spending a
significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
But so what, it was still worth it!
